About the Teacher

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, where I double-majored in Physics & Astronomy and Environmental Studies. While there, I conducted research for three years in the Chemistry Department and presented at two academic conferences. My love of teaching science came from three years as a Science and Planetarium Educator at a Museum and Science Center in upstate New York, where I’m originally from.

Aside from the sciences, I have a passion for international issues and culture; I’ve also obtained an M.A. in International Affairs from American University and the University for Peace in San Jose, Costa Rica. I spent the last two years living abroad in Ecuador and am excited to now be teaching at Lowcountry Prep!
